I am in my second year teaching at the same school. I love my students and I love being a teacher, but the tide is changing. My administration has started weekly “walk-throughs” in our classes. They claim they aren’t “gotchas,” yet they are tracking the data. I always do my best in the classroom, but today I was having a bad day. Of course my assistant principal walked through took some notes and walked out. I kind of resent this weekly drive by. I think they should focus on the teachers who are doing a shitty job every day. I find it demoralizing to have an administrator in my classroom once a week. I am grateful to have a job, but I totally understand why so many new teachers don’t stick around and quit within the first 5 years of teaching.
